According to the well-known digital blogger @Digital Chat Station broke the news today, the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chip will surpass the Apple A series chip with the same band for the first time in terms of GPU performance, and even lead by a large margin.
From the content of the revelations, the GFXBench test frame numbers of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2, Dimensity 9200, and Apple A16 are about 217fps, about 176fps, and about 195fps, respectively. These frame numbers can basically be understood as the running score of the GPU.
From the results, the GPU performance of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 can be said to be far better than that of Apple A16. It is indeed very powerful. However, it should be noted that strong GPU performance does not mean strong game performance. It also depends on the player. Whether the game you play is more CPU-intensive or GPU-intensive, taking the most popular Genshin Impact as an example, it pays more attention to the performance of the CPU. Of course, the powerful GPU will definitely have a certain number of frames, but it is obviously not as good as the CPU. Significantly.
In addition, the blogger also revealed the detailed architecture information of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 and Dimensity 9200. Dimensity 9200 uses one X3 large core, 3 A715 large cores and 4 A510 small cores, while Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 It adopts 1 X3 large core, 2 A715 large cores, 2 A710 large cores and 3 A510 small cores. The Dimensity 9200 is undoubtedly more radical between the two. After all, the new A715 does not support 32-bit applications. Dimensity 9200 adopts such a scheme. I don’t know whether it will have compatibility effects on some special software in the future.
Judging from the current revelations and running scores, since both of them use TSMC’s 4nm process, they should not have obvious energy consumption ratios and heating gaps like the Dimensity 9000 and Snapdragon 8 Gen1 at the beginning of the year.
From the manufacturer’s point of view, although the performance gap between the Dimensity 9200 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 is not large, from the perspective of later adjustment and optimization, it is undoubtedly more secure to choose Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. Although Qualcomm was overtaken by MediaTek Dimensity 8100 and 9000 in the era of Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 8 Gen1, its brand influence in the high-end mobile phone market is still unmatched by MediaTek. Therefore, although the performance of Dimensity 9200 is not weak, I am afraid It’s still hard to see on high-end flagships.
In addition, MediaTek Dimensity’s image processor ISP has always been at a disadvantage compared to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, which makes it difficult for many models that focus on image shooting to consider using the Dimensity 9200. Judging from the current news, it seems that only vivo will be in the future. Released the Dimensity 9200 flagship with full peripheral configuration. Of course, users don’t need to worry about their camera capabilities. After all, vivo uses its own self-developed ISP. Judging from the previous Dimensity 9000 models, the image is still guaranteed.
